Harnessed: How Language and Music Mimicked Nature and Transformed Ape to Man

The medical consensus is that our skill to appreciate human speech has developed over millions of years. finally, there are complete parts of the mind dedicated to human speech. We learn how to comprehend speech sooner than we will even stroll, and will seamlessly take up huge, immense quantities of knowledge just by listening to it.

Evidence began to appear in such observations for tidal effects in many of these galaxies; a tidal explanation of these effects was dramatically confirmed in the computer modelling by the Toomre twins. The question which then presented itself was whether such effects may occur on a larger scale in galaxy groups and clusters. The first investigation of these matters made with the 250-ft telescope was an HI survey of the galaxies in the Virgo cluster. M. Lewis and I found that the Virgo cluster galaxies contained less HI than galaxies of the same type in the field.

Our next push forward in a strategy to improve sensitivity was to construct an interferometer at 30 GHz on the Tenerife site. This readily measured the fluctuation amplitudes on 1° and 2° scales and showed that the site was excellent for interferometric observations at frequencies around 30 GHz where Galactic foreground contamination was small and measurable. With this confidence-booster behind us, a collaboration was formed between Jodrell Bank Observatory, the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge and the Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias to build a 14element interferometric array at 30 GHz known as the Very Small Array.
